    1971 Marshall JMP 50 Model 1987 anyone?

    The next step in the Marshall story, the JMP range can arguably be considered the classic Marshall tone, heard on so many records and the benchmark for what rock guitar was to sound like for most of the 70s and into the 80s. This 1987 model retains the by this point infamous tone with some adjustments to the manufacturing process introduced at the time.  

    Cosmetically this head is in great condition. There are marks to the tolex but its free of tears and there are no extensive sections of wear. The piping is unbroken and the small logo is correct and unbroken. 

    The metal front is in excellent condition with only slight damage to one digit. 

    As you can see, the bulgin power inlet has not been changed and the amp comes with the original power cable provided by Marshall. We would recommend finding a more modern alternative.

    Internally there doesn’t seem to be any changes as you can tell by the plethora of red ink marks on the solder joints. Drake transformers look to be correct and in good condition though the mains transformer does seem to have a 1976 date stamp.

    The head comes with its correct cover.

    This is a great sounding head, which will come as no surprise I’m sure. Plenty of those classic tones on tap with enough volume to keep up.

    From Marshall’s first iconic period, this would make an excellent addition to any collection or even out on the highways and byways, smoking up stages wherever it lands. Grab it before it gets away…
